Tickets for Vikings Game Selling at a Premium
(ABC 6 News) -- Vikings fans can't wait until the Vikings and Packers face off this Sunday. The game has playoff implications. If you plan on being there in person, but don't have a ticket, prepare to pay a hefty price.
"Peterson is possibly going to break a record. Last home season game," said Vikings fan Wynn Todd.
"As a big Vikings fan, it would be a great thing to see AP beat the record and if the Vikings win, we're in," said Vikings fan Michael Vogel.
That, and the Vikes are playing their biggest division rivals, the Packers. "This is the most hyped up game that there ever is," said Todd.
Which, it's no surprise seats at the dome are all sold out. If you turn to companies like Stub Hub, a nosebleed seat is upwards of $300. You search Craigslist, and prices are around $400, to even $1,000 per seat.
"That's where I top it off. You start pushing the $500 mark, that's a little too much," said Vogel.
"I'd like to get 500 dollars," said Todd. He’s a season ticket holder and has gone to almost every game for 30 years, but says he's selling his because he knows he'll get a lot. "I’ve got six but I've sold four of them," said Todd.
Even if you won't be shelling out big bucks, it doesn't mean you'll miss out on a life-sized experience. "I got a 12 foot screen and an 18 foot screen here at Dooley's Pub. I think I'd stay here and watch it for that kind of money, " said Vogel.
The Vikings are warning fans to not be faked out by bogus tickets, both online, and ones being sold in person at the game.
